You wanna spread terror across the land...

...who needs suitcase nukes...
"We have 61 adults hospitalised, 21 in intensive care," a spokeswoman for the Eppendorf University Clinic in Hamburg, where most cases are being treated clinic, said Monday evening.

The clinic has appealed for blood donations.

"We are using between 500 and 700 bags of plasma per day, compared to 60 normally. We're running out of supplies," the spokeswoman said.

Rolf Stahl, a neurologist at the clinic, said nearly a third of patients there had lost all kidney functions and were on dialysis.
This is apparently a simple case of e-coli poisoning... try imagine a concerted terrorist attack on food or water supplies.

The miracle is... that it hasn't happened already.
